Fakhar Zaman says injury break helped him, hopes to score big in upcoming matches

PAK VS BAN, ICC World Cup 2023: Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman says recovery from injury has helped him and he hopes to score big in the upcoming World Cup matches. Thanks to Jaman’s brilliant half-century, Pakistan defeated Bangladesh by seven wickets in the World Cup match here on Tuesday. He missed five of Pakistan’s six matches due to a knee injury.

After the match he said, “Staying out for some time helped. I practiced a lot after the Asia Cup. I enjoyed the camp. I wanted to score big but this is cricket. ,

He said, “I was telling Abdullah Shafiq that I will play the first four overs carefully and then hit sixes no matter what the pitch because I know I can do it and I know my role. ,

He said, “Net run rate was also on our mind. After 100, we wanted to finish the game before 30 overs. I hope I will score big in the coming matches. ,

Pakistan captain Babar Azam praised his team’s all-round performance and hoped that the win would boost their morale ahead of the final two matches.

“Credit to the players, the way they performed in all three departments, it was fantastic. We know how Fakhar plays when he is at the crease. And it was great to see him do it again.

We will try to win our remaining matches and see where we reach. This win will boost their confidence before the upcoming matches.

Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan admitted that he did not score well.

He said, “The runs were not enough. The wicket was good. We lost wickets early. We got partnerships but they were not big enough so we did not get a good score in the last 10 overs.

We should have bowled better. The credit goes to Pakistan for batting well in the first 10 overs.
